I don't think many people have a trouble free web cam, whatever make or model of pc or web cam. I get echo and feed back; if that's wot you mean by static, or do you litterly mean static. Helps to have your volume down a touch and the person who you are speaking to also, especially if it has a built in microphone(sorry, not checked your model), a seperate microphone is best as it's away from any possible speaker feedback from your pc's speakers, or any other clse electrical interference. Hope this relieves it a little.

If this is definately a compatability problem, you should take the cam back and exchange for a compatible one before you have had it too long to exchange. Ask the shop advice and if there is still a problem then atleast it's the shops fault in advising you wrongly.

SOURCE: no sound on my computer with quick cam communocate STX

i had the same problem just go to control panel and click on sound. after that you will see your speaker system and then a digital sound system (which is for the camera) pick your system. This took me hours to figure out but I set it so the camera uses my speakers.

SOURCE: logitech quick cam communicate stx on Vista - microphone not working

Why isn't the microphone on my camera working?
trnsp.gif Answer The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.

Logitech QuickCam STX vista compatibility?


Have you updated DirectX?, I'm not sure if Vista has DX9.0 or 9.0c, but you could try and update DirectX before you install the cam software. Also if the cam is usb, did you install the software "before" connecting the cam?, some people aren't aware that usb devices have to have the software installed first, before connecting the device.
